sponsored by Jobvite

Winning the war for “right-fit” talent is increasingly difficult, especially for harder-to fill positions. Many organizations are turning to social media to help increase their candidate pool with qualified applicants, but are unsure what the best strategy is for success.

Jenny DeVaughn, Senior Director of Employment Branding and Social Media at Randstad Sourceright and Brett Underhill, Director, Recruiting of Programs, at Prudential Financial will guide attendees through best practices and actionable tips for implementing social media strategy to identify and recruit the right talent. Through real-life examples of tactical recruitment campaigns and innovative ideas, attendees will learn how their organizations can implement a social media strategy that highlights a strong employment brand message and differentiates the organization to engage the individuals who will help them meet their overall business goals. Attendees will also gain insight into how they can identify and align recruiting and organizational goals to create recruitment marketing campaigns that engage a diverse candidate pool.  A targeted social media strategy also helps to highlight what analytics and metrics should be measured to determine the overall effectiveness of their employment brand and return on investment.

Jenny and Brett will also highlight why interactive, live and shareable content is so valuable to social media strategy, and how employers can leverage employment assets about the organization’s brand and culture, and help candidates consider them for an opportunity.
